Removing a Stump and a Walk On the Talking Trees Trail

Trail work

I rode my quad runner up into the hills to do some trail work.

I had a small stump that was in the old trail that needed to be removed. I dug it up thinking it may just be small and pop out but it was small but it was hooked to big log that was buried.stump1


So since I couldn’t dig it out of the ground, I split it up until the remainder was lower then the trail dirt.split2


I put the dirt back and now it looks like this. Much better.fixed3


Trail walk

That was enough work for one day so from there I went over to the Talking Trees Trail and walked around on it. The wind was blowing a bit today so that meant the trees were doing some talking as they rubbed on each other. The wind wasn’t much so there wasn’t a lot of talking as when it really blows.

I walked down the trail through here.trail4


And under this log and down the trail.trail5


Walking through here was nice with the big ferns.trail6


I was making a loop so I walked up this part of the trail.trail7


And along here to get back to where I’d parked the quad runner.trail8



I rode the quad back on home where I found the chickens begging to be let out into the front yard where they like to graze in the late afternoon.chickens9

I spotted this wild quail. I’ve noticed they’ve been getting quite tame and seem to like to stay in the big brush pile near by.qawil11


I think they’ve been getting used to me while I sit in my chairs with my chickens and have been getting brave as they usually fly off and are skittish.

Here’s some more of them, I think there was about 30 or so of them.quail12


The daffodils continue to bloom.daffs13


I sat out with the birds until it started to get dark and chilly so I went in for the day.

Nice day.

    Bob, I’m happy to see you bought some new toys. I guess there’s no such thing as drones insurance? Looking at your photo while flying over Tom’s chicken pen I started thinking about the serial chicken killer that got into his pen a while back. Did you ever have any luck identifying the culprit? One of the lease days before too long I will have to drive out your way so we can shoot the bull for a while.
    Good blogs!

    Btw. I forgot to comment the other day on your drone pictures. I loved seeing your property from that view. Makes it easy to see the places you talk about. You have a nice spot.
